Mississippi To Arkansas

Today was a troublesome driving day! The rig continued doing the chugging and we are not quite sure why it comes and goes as it does. Just when we thought we were going to have to pull over…it stopped! We decided to pickup a fuel filter while driving through Brinkley, Arkansas and Jerry installed it and we were back on the road in literally minutes…he is such a genius when it comes to just about everything…anyway…once again we didn’t have another chug incident for the rest of the day. We will need to give it a total checkup when we get to Phoenix.

All Interstate driving from here to Phoenix…ugh…we will only be doing about 300 miles a day which is our max. Whether we do the “roads less traveled” or Interstates it seems 300 is the best for us. On the “roads less traveled” it’s because it’s slow going for the most part…on the Interstates, we do better timing but the stress from the trucks whizzing by makes us want to only do that many.

We drove some really nice roads today, US-49, between US-61 and I-40 is a great road. Went from a divided highway to 5 lanes to a two lane but even then it had quite a few passing lanes.
Looked through our campground membership books and chose a campground to stay at and when we went out of our way to get there…it was the MOST trashy dump we have ever seen. See our reviews for the rest of the story.
